Robert Pattinson graced the cover of GQ for the march issue. In the interview he discussed his complex experience as 'Batman.'
The Batman, set to be released March 4, began filming began at the end of 2019. Unfortunately, it started off with an injury to its main actor. Pattinson shared,
"I broke my wrist at the beginning of it all, doing a stunt, even before COVID, So the whole first section was trying to keep working out -- looking like a penguin. I remember when that seemed like the worst thing that could go wrong."
he then tested positive for COVID-19 in September 2020. After that, filming started up again leading towards an 18-month-long shoot.
"The nature of the shoot was so kind of insular, always shooting at night, just really dark all the time, and I felt very much alone. Even just being in the suit all the time. You’re not really allowed out of the studio with the suit on, so I barely knew what was going on at all outside."
Despite feelings of loneliness, Pattinson found comfort in having something he knew he could count on.
"Whereas I was so incredibly busy the whole time, doing something that was also super high pressure, by far the hardest thing I’ve ever done... I was still playing Batman at the end of the day, even though the world might end... Even if the world burns down, I’ve just got to get this f**king thing out!"
When filming finished up last April, Pattinson recalls the toll it took on him physically.
"I was really, really, really dead afterward, I just looked at a photo of myself from April and I looked green."
After his work was done Pattinson finally sat down to watch a rough cut of The Batman and reflect on the film.
"The first shot is so jarring from any other Batman movie that it’s just kind of a totally different pace. It was what [director] Matt [Reeves] was saying from the first meeting I had with him: 'I want to do a ’70s noir detective story, like The Conversation.' And I kind of assumed that meant the mood board or something, the look of it. But from the first shot, it’s, 'Oh, this actually is a detective story.'"
What fans can expect from the film, Pattinson says that "it's a sad movie." He admitted if he felt nervous about how the movie will be digested,
"It all depends. If people like the movie, it’s great. All of it, but, You never really know until it happens."
